Seventy-three percent of Indiana corn was rated in good to excellent condition this week by USDA, but rough weather has caused problems for some Indiana farmers. JR Roesner, who farms in Sullivan County, has seen his share of heavy rain this year. While he finally got most of his corn and soybeans planted, storms required a considerable amount of replanting, “We have had to replant about 20% of our corn crop, and we switched another 20% to soybeans.” He told HAT an additional 10% will be claimed as prevent plant.  He said other farmers in the area have had similar results with 15% being an average amount of corn replanting on farms. He indicated some of these acres will be planted in soybeans, but not all.
